I Hate Halloween (but don’t tell my kids)

Oh, Halloween, you cooky crazy holiday, you!  I really can’t stand your guts. Or your gore… or your gluttonous amounts of candy… your freaking expensive costumes…  But each year, you come back around with your Reese’s peanut butter pumpkins and your insanely cute kiddos and […]

There are several recipes in my repertoire that have been gifted to me by friends.  This amazingly simple and delicious pumpkin bread recipe is one of them. Long ago, when my boys were little, we were part of a playgroup through the mom’s group at […]

My Guardian Dear

My Guardian Dear

Today is a pretty cool day.  It’s the Memorial of the Guardian Angels, friends!  Have you thanked your guardian angel for keeping you safe from harm lately? When I think back, I marvel at the number of times my angel must’ve stepped in to steer me […]

September Reads: Who knew I was boring?

September Reads: Who knew I was boring?

Well, friends.  It looks like I am a disgrace to the reading world.  I only made it through 1.75 books this month.  And I call myself a reader?  Sheesh. Let’s just suffice it to say that the month of September kicked my behind clear into […]
